Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I can't believe how many people have issue with this, you can't look down at a light or on the dash and make sure a P is highlighted?

That's the problem - you HAVE to look at the dash to ensure you are in park.

Haha, called it back in February:

And you HAVE to look out your windshield to ensure you don't run into someone or something, and lots of people don't do that either.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

Highly unlikely that the parking pawl will engage at 12mph!!. it will sheer off at that speed, tranny won't let it engage. there's a specification for it, sae something

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

Got my shifter recall done on Friday, took over 4 hours to update 4 computers on the Summit. Now when the car is in neutral and you open the door the car automatically shifts into Park. There is no alarm but the EIF says "Autopark".

I agree. You can just get out of the vehicle and see if it rolls.

New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

The shifter is a piece of shit. I always double check and a lot of times bounce between reverse and neutral so I'm glad I do even though the car won't let you shut it off unless it's in park. Night and day difference from my BMW electronic shifter

What would you have to do with a traditional shifter, reach over and put your hand on it? Looking at the dash or indicator on top of the shifter would be less effort. When you are making the change you don't have to look, you can feel the difference in distance the shifter travels and number of clunks it travels through to know if its in R or P.

I also prefer the quicker action getting from P to D, compared with an old fashioned zig zag shifter, along with the easier Sport mode selection compared with using dials or buttons on the console.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I had my 2015 jgc out on a forest service road in the snow and wanted to get off the road slightly to go check something out so put one side up onto the bank. Turns out I got enough snow under it to reduce the weight just enjoy that the tires wouldn't grab. While trying to get it unstuck I notice all 4 tires were spinning and the speedo was reading the speed. One time I went to get out to go dig some more snow out I tried to shift into Park and it wouldn't go and said the vehicle can't shift into Park while moving. The speedo read 4mph, why would they change this to something higher for the door open firmware fix?
